President Trump told reporters on the White House South Lawn Wednesday that he's "not happy" with Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price after learning that he's racked up more than $400,000 by using a taxpayer-funded private jet for his travels.

When asked whether he'd fire Price: Trump said "we'll see," adding that he's looking at the issue "very closely."

More from Trump:

  • Health care: Trump said he'll work with Dems and is considering a "very major" executive order "where people can go out across state lines, do lots of things, and buy their own healthcare." He added that it will "probably [be] signed next week."
  • Roy Moore: "We have a man who's going to be a great senator ...Luther came a long way."
  • Tax reform: Trump would like to "start at 15 and get to 20 [percent]" on corporate tax rate, but "the numbers were so low we couldn't take in the revenue.
  • NFL: Trump said it's a "very bad box" and denied that his remarks contradict the first amendment.
